Silent/Morse/Inverted tooth chain

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some 1" and 3/4" pitch silent chain, both 1.5" wide with centre guide. The designations are SC806 and SC606 respectively. Approx 10ft of the 1" and 20ft of the 3/4" pitch although shorter lengths would be considered.

 

Needed for a WW1 battery locomotive restoration as that I have is incomplete and totally sh*gg*d.

Have you tried contacting Morse chain or Ramsey chain suppliers?

They can supply any length that you want

Thanks - aware of them but need to try to source reclaimed or surplus chain first as the cost of silent chain seems to be vastly higher per pitch than roller chain.

 

A helpful chap on here has given me a 'sympathetic' possible contact and I'm waiting for a response.

 

But when push comes to shove I may have to bite the bullet and try the manufacturers as you suggest for new chain and see what the costs are. I could re-engineer the chain drive to become roller chain, but the effort and expense is probably not warranted on an item that will see infrequent light demonstration operation only.

Pleasure mate. Local knowledge, and trying to find the chain that lifts the stretchers in a 101 ambulance. :D

Thanks. Already in contact with them as they were suggested by someone on another forum. Just awaiting a price ....

But happy to explore other leads, particularly from surplus dealers.

Sadly their price makes it unviable. So still looking and maybe will have to re-engineer to roller chain.
